“Investments in direct real estate in the Netherlands are tremendously popular. For foreign investors and private equity firms a well thought out portfolio and efficient and careful management of the properties are important for optimal efficiency. That requires specific knowledge of the local real estate market and knowledge of financial constructions and tax law to make sure investments correspond with the needs and aspirations of investors. We are fully organised around this service: we have been in real estate for 20 years, have a solid structure for controlling and reporting, are in possession of the Dutch Supervision of Trust Offices Act license (Wtt) and are supervised by the Dutch Central Bank. Rob’s strong track record in the field of accounting, company management and fiduciary management, in combination with our thorough knowledge of the real estate market offers us the opportunity to expand our management services activities to clients of which we are not the asset management partner.”
